My Thoughts on the Carolina Panthers' 2010 Schedule - By Chris Harris

Yesterday, on Twitter (Follow me at... @ChrisHarrisNFL), Panthers' fan Jason Key (@DarthWayaasked...

"As a player, do you guys pay any attention to the "toughest schedule" talk? Or is it that they're all tough?"

Nope... we don't really concern ourselves with the perceived difficulty of our schedule.  All we can worry about is that we play hard every game, no matter who's on the other side of the ball.  As long as we have a good product on the field and play competitively, we should be able to beat ANY team and coast on into the Super Bowl ;-)

As far as whether or not the Panthers' 2010 schedule that was just released is a "hard" one or an "easy" one... I can't really tell.  You see... the NFL alternates team's schedules every year by having you play particular divisions --- last season, we played the NFC East and AFC East --- and in the 2010 season, we're gonna play the NFC West and AFC North.  So schedules are cycled around like that, and if the the one we're dealt just so happens to be a "tougher" one, then I guess we have a "tough" one.  If not, then we have an "easy" one.  But, like I said, above... we really don't pay any attention to speculations on the degree of difficulty we're supposedly gonna face in a coming season.  We just tackle each team on a week by week basis and make sure we're prepared to beat'em down.

On a personal note, though: I'm a bit excited about the 2010 schedule, because it's gonna bring the Chicago Bears - my former team - to Charlotte.  I have a lot of friends over there and it will be cool to square off against them ;-)

Before I wrap this up, I gotta ask if you guys have been watching the Playoffs?  Who do y'all think's gonna make it to the Super Bowl?  I'm going with the Dallas Cowboys and San Diego Chargers.  Obviously, I'm pretty sure all of us wish the Panthers were in the hunt, but our situation is what it is ...ain't it?  We'll get'em next season, though!
